Molly is a Professor of Clinical Nursing at The Ohio State University and Assistant Director of Implementation Science at the Helene Fuld Health Trust National Institute for Evidence-Based Practice (EBP). Dr. McNett’s research centers on care of critically ill patients after severe neurological injury. In her work, she has led multiple funded, multi-site studies, and routinely leads international, interdisciplinary guideline development groups in critically synthesizing the research literature to generate meaningful practice recommendations. She has extensive experience working with leadership teams in health systems to apply research findings and evidence-based practice recommendations using an implementation science approach. Dr. McNett routinely leads interdisciplinary teams in creating infrastructures for EBP and research, and has led numerous task forces to integrate key components of research, evidence-based practice, implementation science, and quality improvement initiatives into healthcare settings.
Implementing the AACN Essentials and integrating competency-based education (CBE) will be a challenging task even for the most skilled educators. This presentation will focus on one school’s unique faculty-led model to navigate these curricular revisions with a strong belief that to bridge the gap from academics to practice, graduates must be competent, predictable, resilient and lead with a social justice lens. The structure, processes, and current outcomes will be shared including strategies to meet the charge of CBE: critical assignments, rubrics, and simulation. Plans for frequent faculty development strategies will be reviewed. Participants will have the opportunity to use the presenter’s organizational structure and course mapping templates, as well as approaches to infuse CBE during this engaging and interactive session.
